Kepkezelo.com, a Hungarian image hosting site
|URL||• • •|
|Archiving status||Partially saved (July '14 – Jan '15 pictures)|
|IRC channel||(on hackint)|
Kepkezelo.com is a quite unreliable Hungarian image hosting service. They apparently delete uploaded images in no more than half a year.
To make it even worse, they don't let people access uploaded pictures sequentially. Just a "random picture" button helps archivists.
Besides some wrong configuration ("we can't show the picture, click here to download it" --> *clicks there* --> "The picture couldn't be found on the server") and constant deletion, seems okay. Sometimes even the "random picture" button leads to no picture.
UPDATE: as of June 2015, the random picture request always leads to no picture. However, the image hosting still works, as some Google results prove.
No information. TOS last updated 2010-02-01. (Service seems to have started in 2008.)
No information, nor about the operators. One ad banner on the bottom.

Wayback Machine doesn't (can't) archive the pictures.
user:bzc6p decided to do a discovery regularly (every 5 months) using the "random picture" function of the site, and downloads discovered new pictures.
UPDATE: as of June 2015, the random picture function cannot be used to discover images, search engine scraping is necessary.
Next run: June 2015.
First run (January 2015): ~45,000 images downloaded, ~17 GiB total.
